Peacock Feathers and Calypso Blue

Greetings and Happy New Year! Sorry it has been awhile, but I have some good photos and a lot of progress to share.

The boys' bathroom is 99% complete---the Cambrian Black counter tops will be installed later this week and then all will be complete! We finally got our awesome 3 foot Kohler Brockway sink and cabinet delivered and it looks as great as I hoped it would. (Sorry about the bad lighting in these photos but I think you get the idea):

You can also see our new built-in cupboard in the mirror; there are about 5 or 5 pullout drawers in there.

The faucets come with the sink and are a mixture of stainless and chrome finishes; all other fixtures and knobs are chrome.

Now two can brush teeth at the same time!

The master has progressed much quicker than we expected, given the size of the room and the fact that it was a total gut job. Bathtub and toilet need to be installed and we are waiting on the glass doors for the steam shower. There are, as usual, other little detail jobs that also need to be completed, but those are the big ones.

Kind of hard to see but these are the new linen closets; used to be open shelves. Now the left side is for hanging clothes and the right side has adjustable shelves. Upper portion is just a big open cabinet for comforters, etc.

Revealed chimney. Cabinets were built by Amish craftsmen who don't use electricity or telephones (except 30 minutes per day!). They even needed a driver bring them and the cabinets on installation day!

The mirrors next to the chimney are actually medicine cabinets! The color on the top of the wall is Benjamin Moore Peacock Feathers; cabinet is Calypso Blue. I don't remember the color on the bottom part of the wall---oops.

With all the color on the walls we kept it simple in the shower---white subway tile, a black hex border on the floor (there are black hex triangles scattered on the main floor, sorry they are not visible), and soapstone on the bench and shower entry.

Large shower head; you can also see the controls for the steam shower lower left. Also jets in the middle.

Another view-- near the floor you can see where the steam will come out.

Hopefully I'll have more to post soon---thanks for reading!
